Garmin® International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NYSE: GRMN), the world's largest and most innovative marine electronics manufacturer, today announced Garmin Navionics+™ and premium Garmin Navionics Vision+™ for Garmin chartplotters, the newest generation of marine cartography products from Garmin.

Wherever mariners choose to plot their paradise, new Garmin cartography products offer an all-in-one mapping solution that integrates detail-rich inland and offshore content, as well as a variety of tools to support smarter and safer navigation.

"Garmin Navionics+ and Garmin Navionics Vision+ offer our best and most feature-rich marine cartography experience to date - a true game-changer for boaters and anglers," said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. "Now, with new coverage regions, mariners have the freedom to confidently explore inshore and offshore waters with a full suite of mapping content and advanced features. Plus, with access to daily chart updates, mariners can stay informed about the latest changes to their maps and charts and benefit immediately from new cartography releases."

In addition to unparalleled worldwide coverage and No.1 marine mapping1, new Garmin cartography offers a myriad of features - including an all-new chart presentation, daily chart updates and advanced autorouting capabilities - that are designed to smoothly guide boaters on the water, or quickly lead anglers to where the fish may be hiding. It also features colour-shaded target depth ranges, up to 0.5 m depth contours, shallow water shading and exclusive access to ActiveCaptain community content for valuable insight on points of interest (POI), recommendations and advice from fellow boaters.

Here's what's new with Garmin cartography:

New, redesigned chart presentation

Garmin Navionics+ and Garmin Navionics Vision+ introduce an improved look and feel - with vivid colour palettes and greater detail of coastal and inland features - to deliver a new, on-screen cartography presentation for more intuitive navigation on lake or sea. This new interface displays charts in striking detail with a crystal-clear look at the depths below the boat, as well surrounding structure and navigational aids above the waterline.

Up to 5,000 daily updates

With up to 5,000 updates to chart content every day, Garmin's new cartography products offer the latest insights about any body of water for enhanced situational awareness and peace of mind while navigating. Daily chart updates combine millions of contributions from private and public surveyors, crowd-sourced data and more, delivering the freshest, most up-to-date content each time mariners leave shore. With coverage of more than 42,000 lakes worldwide, daily updates allow for immediate access to new chart data and lake content as it is released. A one-year subscription is included with the purchase of Garmin Navionics+ or Garmin Navionics Vision+ and offer a quick-and-easy way to sync a mobile device to Garmin chartplotters for unlimited daily updates via the ActiveCaptain® smart device app.

Advanced autorouting technology

New Garmin cartography also includes Auto Guidance+ technology with faster route calculations and improved routing detail. After selecting departure and arrival points, Auto Guidance+ considers a variety of factors - overhead clearance, chart data, popular routes and desired depth - then creates a suggested route for mariners to follow to their destination.

For more advanced features, boaters and anglers can upgrade to premium Garmin Navionics Vision+ to discover more about the coasts they cruise or lakes they fish. Premium Garmin cartography includes all the standard features found in Garmin Navionics+, with the addition of relief shading, unique 3D views, high-resolution satellite imagery, aerial photography and more.
